I feel like I have a belt around my bicep, and my arm feels extremely heavy to lift. Burning is my way of describing the pain. I broke my shoulder and my elbow. My elbow has lost a lot of motion.

Good evening @martydav. There can't be two of us with broken shoulders and elbows. Wow. Here I go with my funky questions again. What part of your shoulder was broken? Mine was dislocated out of the socket and the rotator cuffs were no more. No two surgeries are exactly alike.

I don't think you should be in that kind of pain 3 months post-surgery. Once the mobilizer came off, I got a purple cast. I sure didn't know they had colors. I should have known when I realized the other patients were young folks. Summer baseball or other activities were responsible in some way. No wonder they cheered when I came out with the purple.

Is there a special orthopedic clinic near you, a teaching hospital? Do you have a follow up appointment?

May you be healthy and protected.
